      I'm pagan and atheist, but I think this should be more in debates and rants and stuff.

      Going to move this back into Off Topic, I don't feel this is a debate thread as it's only asking what religion you are, some opinions may be raised but I don't think it will be enough to turn it into a debate.

      Thanks.

      I'm not religious and wasn't married in church but I've got nothing against people who are religious.
      The only thing I don't tolerate is people peddling religion door to door,if I want religion I'll go to church thank you :)

      religious?
      not in the official terms but I am religious in my own way.
      I follow the way of magic.
      everything is everything is everything.

      and yes, Naiwen is probably right.
      maybe it's not a discussion but it will probably become one...

      Even tho I was baptized and raised Catholic, I do not believe all that the Catholic religion preaches.
      I do believe in God, and that the devil does exsits.
      I don't believe you have to attend church in order to get into heaven.
      I do believe... when someone dies, then sees their life review, (and depending on how you lead your life
      and how you treated others, and that includes animals as well) that determines where one will go on the other side.

      Aps, like you... I don't like it when people peddal their religion door to door. The last time this happened, I didn't answer the front door. Instead, I just opened the upstairs window that faces our driveway and asked the religious peddalers what they wanted. I told them I was Catholic and wasn't interested in what they were peddaling & preaching. Those people never did come back, but if they ever do... I'll only talk to them from the upstairs window. That may be rude of me, but I didn't invite them to my house, nor do I preach my religion to them. If I want religion, then I'll go to church of my own free will.

      I was raised a Presbyterian, rebelled against it in my teens and then came back to God at the age of nearly 16. I'm an Anglican nowadays and unless it's absolutely impossible go to church every Sunday and on things like Christmas and Easter.

      But I'm NOT some sort of Holy Willie and my hubby is an agnostic!
